Same thing with Kostitsyn. He's not a sniper because he's got a good shot, nor is he a power forward because he's strong. It's just not his style.
With young players, you let them develop their game first. It's what got them to the NHL. You then gradually incorporate elements into their game by making them understand how to better use their assets. But here on hfboards, you're labeled a certain type of player and then called a bust for not meeting the fans' expectations...
Difference is, MaxPac has some powerforward in him. He's just not strong enough to use his skills at the NHL level.
